You could, but it shouldn't matter - it only affects the VMA of
segments and the LMA of sections.  The segments would only be used by,
for example, SREC outputs, which only use PT_LOAD anyway, and sections
are normally used for their VMA, not LMA.  I haven't verified this,
but I think it might compute the correct values anyway - the altered
field is not used in computations on read-in.

I'll add one if you want, though.  It would add symmetry :-) (and
paranoia)
